This diamond-shaped wrap is created by knitting two identical triangles and seaming them together. Each triangle begins as a few stitches which are consistently increased and uses a variety of stitch patterns and short row wedges to complete their shape. After the triangles are seamed, an icord border is applied for a crisp finish.
This project contains brioche knitting as well as an alternative seed stitch option for those who prefer not to knit brioche.
This project is a great way to use scraps of yarn - stripes work particularly well with any of the larger garter sections. If a smaller wrap is desired, this project could also be knit with fingering weight yarn on an appropriate needle size (US 4-6 depending on gauge). I suggest alternating between lighter and darker yarns for each section if you’re having a hard time deciding on color placement.
I loved using yarn from Hedgehog Fibres for this project - their colors all play wonderfully together so you really can’t go wrong plus the Alpaca DK is exquisitely soft! I would also recommend incorporating any textured yarn like a brushed suri or holding a lace weight mohair along with any DK yarn add more dimension to the wrap. Qing Fibre’s Brushed Baby Suri is a wonderful yarn to use for this purpose.
Dimensions: 86 in / 218 cm wide and 52 in / 132 cm tall after blocking.
